Kathryn Williams

PhD Candidate, Cardiff University

I am an autistic and ADHD researcher currently undertaking an Economic and Social Research Council funded PhD at Cardiff University’s School of Social Science examining the role of communication in access to healthcare for autistic adults. I am also a voluntary non-executive director at Autistic UK CIC, an organisation run by autistic people for autistic people, where I lead their research participation. My research position at Autistic UK first sparked my interest in inclusive, participatory methodology, and I pursued an MSc in Social Science Research Methods for which I was awarded a distinction. My other research interests include epistemic injustices faced by neurodivergent people, neoliberal-ableism, and neuronormativity within healthcare and social policies.
